Toronto – 24 February 2019 – Young Professionals and Skilled Workers Association (YPSWA) successfully organized and hosted its bi-annual Multicultural Canadian Fair and Trade Show (MCF) at Woodbine Mall & Fantasy Fair.

The Multicultural Canadian Fair and Trade Show is a premier event in the Greater Toronto Area that brings together culture, arts, sport and ethnic businesses and organizations for a day of business networking and intercultural interaction.

Hon. Kirsty Duncan, Federal Minister of Science and Sport, as well as, Hon. Michael Tibollo, Ontario Minister of Tourism, Culture and Sport and Hon. Todd Smith, Ontario Minister of Economic Development, Job Creation and Trade participated in the event as speakers. In fact, they have opened the Multicultural Canadian Fair and Trade Show 2019 to the public.

In an attempt to encourage many Ontarians to upgrade their employability, both Ontario Ministers took part in professional profile-photo session for LinkedIn profile or resume. Many other participants followed their example and also took professional profile-photos at Fair.

Belgian, Italian, Hispanic, Ukrainian, Greek, Bulgarian, Polish, German and other cultures were present in the Fair. They were represented either by their chambers of commerce, congresses, federations, associations or businesses. The Fair showcased prominent multicultural chambers of commerce and their members, trade commissioners, SMEs and other organizations interested in serving ethnic communities or linguistic minorities, promoting businesses, finding new customers, selling products and services, and learning about export/import opportunities.

MCF contained diverse companies, representing such sectors as aerospace, insurance, finance and education and many others. For example, such aerospace companies as Shimco, CEL Aerospace, FED Corporation and Providence Group participated in the Fair and wanted to capitalize on export/import leads that were presented by Chambers of Commerce.

In addition, the trade show was supported by the federal Office of Small and Medium Enterprises (OSME), which were educating the multicultural public, organizations and businesses about their services to the public.

During the breaks, ethnic artists and performers performed cultural performances. On social media, MCF used #MultiFair2019 as its hashtag.

YPSWA is thankful to all sponsors, including to the Ukrainian Credit Union, Shimco, Providence Group, Staples, Xtreme Couture -Mixed Martial Arts and Fitness for sponsorship of this event. YPSWA is especially thankful to the Government of Canada for its partial support of this event.
